Corlan Cottage is a luxurious holiday home in the Welsh village of Llanfarian, close to historic Aberystwyth and within walking distance of the beautiful Afon Ystwyth and the welcoming Royal Oak Inn. With a large private hot tub and games room which has a 6ft pool table and bar, this large detached cottage is ideal for big families, extended families, or friends. It has plenty of space to sleep up to nine people in four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It's a fantastic choice for people who enjoy being outdoors and active, exploring the coast, climbing mountains, sightseeing and doing all the other fun things that make this part of Wales a year-round favourite holiday destination.
Llanfarian is a pretty, tranquil village three miles south of the lovely seaside town of Aberystwyth which sits on the beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay. Guests staying at the cottage can enjoy direct access from the front door onto the Ystwyth Cycle Trail which takes a scenic route along the river, by foot or bike, into the harbour of Aberystwyth with cafes, restaurants and shops - everything you could need or want is within easy reach without being in your face.
When you're ready to explore, you'll find Aberystwyth bursting with fun. The popular seaside resort is home to a prestigious university, and arts centre, and the National Library of Wales. Instead of a High Street crammed with copycat names, it's a lively mix of independent shops, stylish bars, and quirky cafes. Food is a massive deal in Aberystwyth, where eateries cater for all tastes and budgets. Though you might arrive ravenous, especially if you've walked or cycled from the cottage, you certainly won't leave hungry!
Day trips can include a relaxing day on one of Aberystwyth's glorious blue flag beaches, walking along the Wales Coast Path and drinking in panoramic views over Cardigan Bay. Take your binoculars to spot sea birds and dolphins, or book a seat on a sightseeing boat trip to get a little closer to Britain's biggest pod of bottle-nose dolphins. It isn't only walkers who enjoy the scenery around Corlan Cottage. Mountain bikers also love the diversity of local trails which suit all disciplines and abilities. Aberystwyth is a university town and boasts a narrow gauge railway and cliff railway, a traditional cinema and the largest Arts Centre in Wales.
You'll adore every minute of your holiday when you stay at Corlan Cottage. It is the complete package of luxury accommodation, fantastic location, space and views. The cottage is available for bookings all year round. The owner has two other holiday homes close to Corlan Cottage, each finished and furnished to the same high standard. Depending on availability, they can be booked together for extended families or friends who want to holiday together without sacrificing their space or privacy. Please see the owner's website for details.
